Using green screen technology, Rachel Maclean constructs fantasy narratives set in computer-generated landscapes. Maclean plays each of the characters in her films donning outlandish self-made costumes and thick make-up. Comprised of six videos, Let it Go, explores themes of class, aspiration and childhood as 6 wide-eyed pauper characters mime to dialogue sourced from YouTube. These segments are spliced together with passionate confessions of hunger, rage, suffering and insecurity (parental guidance advised).
